Where to even begin? I guess I should start with my family and thank them for their understanding during the time it took me to write this book. From there, I think I will go with chronological order.
I want to thank the crew from McGill University for giving me my first paid job as a web designer and John Tersigni, who gave me my first real project working with Flash and ActionScript. If you all had not done these things, I would not be where I am today.
I also want to say thank you to Geoff Cook, Jeremy Zorn, and the rest of the crew at myYearbook.com. They gave me my first real job programming on a high-traffic website and were a great crew to work with.
Then there is the crew at Purple Communications, who hired me to do Flex-PHP applications. You have definitely thrown some interesting projects my way and I have learned a great deal.
And of course there is the crew at Wiley, who have been nothing but supportive and understanding. Specifically, I want to thank the entire editorial crew who went through great pains trying to figure out the esoteric rules for capitalizing variable and class names.
I also want to thank the technical editor Jeffry House, who was always there with helpful suggestions and alternative ways of doing things.
Finally, there are all of you, the readers. Without you, none of the efforts that went into this book mean anything. I hope you find this book a valuable resource.
